.gal (Galician pronunciation: [ˈpunto ˈɡal]) is a sponsored top-level domain intended to be used to highlight the Galician, Galician language and Galician culture. It was approved on 14 June 2013 by ICANN and the first 93 domains went online on July, 25th 2014.
The initiative was backed by more than 13,700 people and 110 institutions in Galicia, including relevant agencies of culture such as the Royal Galician Academy, the Galician Culture Council or the three Galician universities.
Asociación PuntoGal is committed to ICANN to establish a foundation to reinvest the money in projects that promote Galician language and culture in the field of new technologies.
